Help needed in VA beach area!

Trying to change out valve springs to complete this cam install this weekend and if anyone in the Virginia beach area has a LS valve spring compressor tool they would be my HERO!!!!! Having clearance issues with unversal spring compressor (wheel type that has two forks that capture bottom of spring). Too tall on back cylinders . The lever type won't work because of supercharger is in the way.... HELP!!!!!!!!!!! The tool I am referring to does both springs at the same time....

I had the same problem, if you have some scrap steel you can easily make your own like I did if you have some tools. Very simple and it works like a charm.
